Unique Partnership to Help US Healthcare Systems and Corporations
Attract and Retain Nurses and Therapists

Hailey, ID -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/23/2005 -- Stafftopia, Inc., a nationally-recognized executive placement company, today announced a multi-year strategic partnership with Global Health Care Recruiters Inc. (GHCR), a multi-national provider based in Chennai, India and Sanibel, Florida. Under this agreement, Stafftopia, Inc will act as the sales arm for GHCR’s Foreign Nurse and Therapist Migration Solutions in the US. GHCR, in turn, will provide the ongoing global resources of healthcare professionals qualified to work in the US. At a time when healthcare organizations are averaging a 10% vacancy rate in nursing positions, and in states like Maryland and Ohio where the vacancy rate is 14%, forcing hospital units to close and non-essential surgeries to be cancelled, the partnership creates a much-needed resource for healthcare organizations faced with significant personnel shortfalls in the short and long-term. Government predictions are that the nation will need 1.7 million nurses by 2020, but just more than 600,000 will be available.
